Species diversity and density of mollusks have been studied in Vashutkiny Lakes (Bol’shezemel’skaya Tundra, northeastern Europe). These lakes are comparable to northern boreal lakes in mollusk species diversity and density levels. Two hypotheses proposed by Zvereva are analyzed: on the relict origin of the ecosystem of these lakes and on the leading role of… CONTINUE READING
